  • Praying Without A Sense Of Failure

    Contributed by Nigel Heath on Sep 6, 2009

    When it comes to prayer most of us feel a sense of failure and some of us give up. This need not be. There is no one-size-fits-all method. You can be encouraged and enable in your prayer life.

    COLOSSIANS 4:2-18 ’Devote yourselves to prayer’ PRAYING WITHOUT A SENSE OF FAILURE INTRO One of the great discoveries we make as Christians, particularly when we begin to read the early chapters of Genesis, is that we were created by God, NOT to go it alone -- not to live a life disconnected more

  • God's Pardon Series

    Contributed by Mark Lewis on Sep 19, 2009

    God’s Pardon Matthew 6:9-15 Luke 11:1-4 Intro. – In prayer, we are to be occupied with the Father’s pardon. When we preach the gospel to those who are outside the kingdom of God, we do not say to the unsaved, "If you promise to forgive, you will be forgiven." We preach an unconditional more

    Give Us Our Daily Bread (Part 2) Luke 11:1-3 Intro. – The Lord’s Prayer teaches us many things. But when we consider this part of the prayer there are two lessons that we cannot afford to overlook: 1. Luke 18:1-8 records the parable of The Importunate Widow which teaches us prayer is a more

    Thy Will Be Done (Part 2) Luke 11:1-4 Intro. – We already have everything we need to be great successes in God’s kingdom, but most of us are rendered incapable of doing such because we do are not aware that we have them!

    Part 9 in a series on the Lord’s Prayer

    Give Us Our Daily Bread (Part 1) Luke 11:1-3 Intro. – There are many passages in the New Testament that relate to the subject of prayer. However there are three that I want to draw your attention to if I may: 1. Luke 18:1-8 records the parable of The Importunate Widow who found a way to more

  • Prayer Events

    Contributed by Jerry Falwell on Sep 22, 2009

    The primary purpose of prayer.

    Prayer Events When we pray, it is not primarily not to get things from God; although that is why many people pray. The primary purpose of prayer is to commune with God, then getting things is only a by-product. And if communion with God is the only thing there is to prayer, that would be more

    based on 1 rating

    What we have here in the 3rd chapter of Habakkuk is undeniably one of the great prayers of the Bible. Prayer should be a natural part of our Christian experience. Part of our walk with Christ should be a personal prayer life....Prayer is our responsibil

  • Pray This Way

    Contributed by Charles Scott on Feb 3, 2008

    Jesus taught us not only the words to say in prayer, but the manner in which to approach God so that prayer becomes effectual in changing not only our lives but enables Christ through the church to change the world around us.

    Matthew 6__5-18 THE WAY TO PRAY In my youth, I was very active in a Church that practiced only extempore prayer. On rare occasion someone might bring a written prayer to a Bible study, but other than the Lord’s Prayer, there was no prayer routinely used in worship, and no one who was a prayer more

  • Can I Be Honest To God?

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on Aug 7, 2009
    based on 2 ratings

    A look at the invitation (and the need) for us to be bold and honest in our talking with God.

    Is it ok to question God? - The presumption is usually that the answer is “no.” - Just sit down and shut up. Just take it. - When you hear people pray, a lot of the praying is very rote and formulaic. It’s pretty rare that you’ll hear someone really bearing their heart to God. It’s more
